Quesadilla With Home-made Corn Tortilla

Mexican food resembles to Indian food in spices and flavours, that may be one of the reason we Indians love Mexican food. This is a very easy Mexican dish which can be prepared at home from scratch. I used to buy tortilla from store but sometime it is not easy to find corn tortilla (gluten free) fresh. The one I get from store were too hard. Once I started making it at home, there is no looking back. I absolutely love it!
